Samsung launches a Tab teaser on Facebook

In the market for a new iPad 2 or one of the many Android-based competitors? Well, hold on to your wallet a bit longer.

In the market for a new iPad 2 or one of the many Android-based competitors? Well, hold on to your wallet a bit longer.

Earlier this week Samsung launched a teaser on its Facebook page called "What's your TAB life?" Early speculation from Mashable suggests that the announcement is going to feature the rumored 8.9-inch model. I would say that the speculation is spot-on since the image that accompanies the teaser shows the numbers 78910, and there's already a 7-inch and 10.1-inch Tab.

Speaking of the 7-inch Tab, I know a lot of people haven't embraced it, but I have to say that it's the perfect size for a tablet. While I find iOS to be superior to Android at this point, especially when it comes to a tablet, the 7-inch form factor provided by the Tab is absolutely perfect, and has me continuously playing with the Tab and wondering if it could actually replace the need for the iPad.

At any rate, CTIA is set to be an interesting time with the biggest tablet news already having been covered beforehand in the form of the XOOM and the iPad 2. Are there others lurking, like the Tab that this article mentions, or will the show be a dud tablet-wise? We'll definitely know in the coming weeks.
